Back in 1987, one of the biggest news stories of the year was when BABY JESSICA fell down that well. It was the '80s. We didn't have Twitter. The stories weren't as good back then.
If you don't remember, Jessica McClure was an 18-month-old who fell down a well in Midland, Texas. It took rescue workers 58 hours to save her and the media coverage was enormous . . . especially for that era before the 24-hour news cycle.
